Response: Thanks for the heart! I missed the event by 2 months, I was so disappointed. But they were kind and left me have about a half inch of leftover postcards
Response: Reaper is a really fantastic book, I highly recommend it! Thanks for the heart!
Response: It's a Kindle only book, but if you have a smart phone, you could read it on that!
Response: Sorry about that! I must have not put it in at the end!
Response: I sent the resend on June 24th, so I hope it will make it to you shortly. I sent you a message when I sent it out.
Response: The one in the pouch was a thank you for your patience during my difficult time. I meant to include a note but got distracted :) Glad you liked it
Response: Oh good, it made it! I was a little worried it wouldn't go through since it was crossing an ocean. I'm glad it made it! I love the rabbit coasters :)
Response: Thanks for the ehart! Glad you enjoyed them. I'm trying to work my massive supply of cards down to manageable, and that means parting with Jetoy and Totoro, at least a few :)
Response: I am so glad you liked your swap, thanks for the heart! I spent a bit of time in the Barnes and Noble, where I found the journal and the bookplates, and had to get a journal for myself!
Response: Glad you liked it, thanks for the heart! I am glad the two themed worked out :)
Response: I'm glad the resend made it. That will teach me not to use a Post Office that's not the same as I usually use! The samples are pretty similar to the ones I sent before, so you're not missing much :)
Response: Oh good, it made it! I was worried that it had gotten lost in the mail. Glad you like it!
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart! I really want to expand it out into a bigger story, and see where it goes. It probably won't be a full novel, but a longer short would be fun :)
Response: I figured it would be a nice touch, a transportation stamp (of a sort) for a transportation card :) Thanks for rating!
Response: I'm glad the resend made it to you! I'm sorry it took so long and the original went missing
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart :) I thought about canceling since there were only two of us, but decided not to. The short stories are available online if you're looking for a quick read of a different type. Both were out of my usual reading order, but interesting.
Response: Thank you! I'm always convinced I'm going to muck up someone's card as I'm still a Zentangle beginner
Response: That's agua, and one of my favorite tangles! I thought it would make a nice border, but also look fun :) Thanks for the rating
Response: Thanks for the rating! Glad you liked the SB Postcard. Rachel gave them out years ago, and I was able to have enough left to send them out with this swap and my USA one.
Response: Woo! I'm glad you got the resend! The pleating took forever, I was trying to keep it pretty even, and it made my hands so tired. But I thought a pleated ribbon would be the most fun. Thanks for rating!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. Isn't it funny what is one person's favorite is on another person's dislike list?
Response: Thanks for the rating! I loved seeing the card when I opened it up. Mu mind just whirled at all the possibilities
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I just knew someone was going to enjoy that scary 80s cheese :)
Response: I turned it over, and my first thought WAS "Well, I hope she's a dog lover." So I went to your profile and saw dogs mentioned, and relaxed. Although, it might have been funnier if you hated dogs? Thanks for the rate and the heart
Response: Thanks for the rate! I wanted to like The Gender Game so much more than I did. I
Response: The purple and orange was extra for you :) I made it up for a swap, forgot I had, and made another, so I had extra :)
Response: Nov 20: Thanks for letting me send you stamps to make up for the postage due! I am sorry that happened
Response: Thanks for the rating! I'm concerned my skills were not up to it. I hope I didn't mess it up :/
Response: You'd think cats wouldn't chew on things. My adult cat doesn't chew much, but I do find tiny kitty teeth marks sometimes.
Thanks for rating!
Response: So Curran kind of grows on you, like a Fungus? =P
Response: Thanks for the rating! I'll message you about the constellation tape :)
Response: The constellations are my newest taoe! I had to share some. Thanks for rating!
Response: It was pretty decent, but some parts were only okay. I liked it enough to get the second book on hold.
Response: Thanks for rating! I'm sorry you ended up with me twice!
Response: Thanks for the rating. I'm glad you'll enjoy the extra page. I thought it was fun to have a non English page to tangle on :)
Response: Thanks for rating! I'm sorry you ended up with me twice!
Response: Woo! glad you liked them. Thanks for the rating
Response: Thank you, for the rating and for the comment. Appreciate it
Response: Mozzie likes to assist me, although the embossing... gun? The heat tool. He hates that.
Response: I'm glad you like it, thank you for rating! I knew I had to do something with those wonderful papers.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I tried for the kitty notecard since your profile mentioned cats. The HP stationery is unfortunately all I have, but it's really well made, so I don't feel bad sending it out. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart! Glad you liked it, I was trying to go for a small kid's speech pattern. I'm glad I succeeded
Response: I'm still not sure what it is. Toast Tongs? Messed up salad tongs? No idea
Response: I highly, highly recommend both authors. Croak was one of the best books I've read all year. the idea is just awesome
Response: I'm glad you like the elephant tape! I think I picked it up when I first started on Swap Bot, so the tape is pretty old. I love it, but I never use it, so I thought gifting samples would be a good use of it
Response: Cat Vs turtle! thank you!
Response: I finished it. It was only ok.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! I too remember seeing that the USPS charges more for odd shaped. It's why I never bother to address them on the lines.
Response: Thanks for the rating! I recommend picking up The Program first, but I did enjoy it.
Response: I guess the movie and the book are similar, but the movie makes a bigger deal of the romance. Really, the romance is almost an afterthought in the book, except for a couple chapters.
Response: Try the last 2! they were far better than the first ones
Response: Rosie was my favorite part of that book. I wish I'd liked it more, but at least rosie stood out.
Response: I'm glad you liked the bookmarks! The papyrus ones were touted online as being nicer, so I was disappointed, but they're not total crap at least :)
Response: Oh, just wait for the letter for the Pick my next read. I'll go into detail there :) Thanks for the rating and <3
Response: Thanks for the rating! The glitter tape was starting to shed when I threw it in the envelope, so I imagine it has glittered things up quite a bit. Sorry about that
Response: Woohoo! Glad I managed to get your favorite colour postcard. I was just picking colours I liked if my partner didn't list a favorite colour :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I had a lot of fun piecing it together, it was the first one of that kind that I've made :)
Response: I'm glad that you can relate to having been to one of the postcards I sent. I tried for a nice variety in case a couple weren't your thing.
Response: Thank you! I'm even further behind this month than last month =/
Response: Thanks for the marriage well wishes :( I couldn't send a postcard and NOT use A Harvey Milk, if I had it in my possession, could i?
Response: I'm glad to see I'm not alone in the liking the flavor, but not the characters, of Water for Elephants, and The Night Circus
Response: Thanks for the rating. I probably forgot the return address sticker, I was doing that often in early June
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I hadn't started on it until partners were assigned, so I figured I could theme it. Thanks for the heart :)
Response: It's really good. I imagine you can probably grill it too, although I've never tried. It's a favorite here
Response: thanks for the heart, and I'm glad you like it! I'm also worried I'll send one off that won't pass muster
Response: Thanks! It's a favorite recipe here
Response: Glad you liked it! Thanks for the heart :)
Response: Thanks for the heart :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I thought the stationery for that letterset it so pretty :)
Response: Glad you liked them!
Response: Glad you liked it! I had fun writing it
Response: Glad you liked it! I tried for a black and white theme on the outside too :) And I LOVE Johnny Cash stamps :)
Response: No worries! I just wanted to make sure it arrived, since it wouldn't be that easy to replace. I'm glad you enjoyed the read. I spent a lot of time going through Utah with my job, and saw a lot of ads for "food storage" which is what prompted that specific journal idea.
Response: Thank you for changing the rating. The swap didn't call for items on your wish list, just items that meshed with your profile. I'm sorry I missed the mark with the glass dishes.
Response: Thank you! I did have a good month. The advantage to driving for a living: lots of time to listen to things :)
Response: Thanks for the rating, now I'm going to need to check out Mr.Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore!
Response: I'm glad you like them! I tried for variety, and for some of the US ones you might not have seen yet
Response: I'm so glad you like it, I hoped you would :)
Response: I'm glad the resend made it to you. I had hoped it would make it by Christmas, but at this point I'm just happy it showed
Response: Thanks for the rating. Turns out, the next book I read was the next one in the series =P
Response: Thank you! Yeah, it didn't go well. It seems that whenever I set a goal for a time period, Murphy moves right in and hangs off my shoulders.
Response: That's interesting to know. It does explain a lot.
Response: I actually saw that mummy too, and it was suitably creepy in person. It came through last year in an exhibit.
Response: USA stamps are tough, if they're a lower denomination, they might be the non sticker kind, and those you can soak off. Otherwise I'm not sure, I haven't had much luck with the sticker kind. Sorry :(
Response: Thanks for the rating! I like The Handmaid's Tale quite a bit, and definitely more than 1984.
Response: To #1, Yes! I play both factions, although it's mostly horde right now :)
Response: Thanks for sending yours to me too, I liked reading them. We had 2 similar ones, which I think was quite funny :)
Response: I'm glad you liked them! I was worried they wouldn't turn out right.
Response: I don't blame you for not being interested. Also, it's the third book in a trilogy, so even if you had a clue, you'd have to wade through 2 books to get to what was going on in that one.
Response: I don't know if Write. Publish. Repeat is a print book libraries, have, but it's not expensive on Amazon if you choose to buy it.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I had fun putting it together, I thought I'd try something different for a change.
Response: Glad you like them! :)
Response: Glad you liked it! I linked to the page for Portland, since that's near me, but I thought it was a great site.
Response: Glad you liked them. I'm really fond of the flame tape too :)
Response: I'm glad you like them! the musical cat one cracks me up. Someone once sent it to me in orange, but other than that, I've never seen it
Response: Thank you! my grandmother recommended the books to me, because she loves Nora Roberts. I don't care for romance, but I like the police procedural ones.
Response: Thanks for the rating. I feel like such a dolt forgetting the postage
Response: Lol! thanks for the rating :)
Response: I thought fairy cracker-mother was hilarious myself :)
Response: I'm glad you liked your stuff! I browsed your Etsy wishlist before I went shopping, so I was hoping what I found would work. sorry the stickers had to be cut funny, it was the only way they'd fit in that tiny box :)
Response: Kind of? My cat is named Mozzie (because of White Collar) and he's the only male in the house, so he won the name slot by default :)
Response: I'm glad you like your bookmarks! I was given the keep calm one a while ago, and I don't use many bookmarks. I really loved the samurai armor one, I have a couple here, if I ever choose to use them :)
Response: Thanks for the rating! I picked them up at Vistaprint, they ended up costing about 3 cents each with some deal they were having (250 cards, 7.50 for shipping). I thought they were a nice way to specify who they're from without someone having to decipher my handwriting.
Response: Glad you liked him, I thought from your profile you might get a kick out of it :)
Response: Thanks for the rating! I didn't know you'd read a Chelsea Cain novel (I should have checked better) or I wouldn't have suggested it. I liked the first one, but I haven't read the rest.
Response: I hoped you'd like them. If I could have found a bigger one, I would have, but they were all out of stores by January :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I picked the card up at the art museum, where they have a fascinating display of Native American art ,especially from the northwest. I'd been hanging onto it, looking for the right swap
Response: I'm glad you could use all the stuff! It's been collecting dust here for a while, and I wasn't sure what to do with it all. I'm also glad to hear it made it, I used the automated postage machine and was worried about them deciding there wasn't enough postage.
Response: I can't wait to see it, I'm also really glad it made it to you okay :)
Response: Um, yes and no to re-reading. If it's an audiobook, there's a good chance I'll listen to it against within a couple years of picking it up. If it's on my nook, then it's sometimes something I've purchased in the last 4 years (which is how long I've had an ereader), or it's a recent purchase of a book I read as a kid. Of the last 2 months, all the books I reread were on my ereader, largely because I didn't have access to get new books.
Response: I recommend Alanna, The First Adventure, because everything in the Tortall universe (one of the two she writes in) stems from that book. It's also a nice quick read.
Response: Lol! That's grandma's printer vs kitty in shadow. He's actually shining white, but that's the best I could do. I figured $9, 9 lives :)
Response: I ended up with Kerrigan, Arthas, and Diablo from the Blizzard games. They're so cute! i have them on the mantle
Response: I'm glad to hear your friend liked it, and that you did as well. I really like that Dave Barry quote :)
Response: Thanks for not minding the resend. My brain was in "get stuff out before vacation!" mode and I totally screwed up the swap. Rocichet is worth reading, I wasn't sure about it, but after the first couple chapters it gets good. I'll check out The Wanting Seed
Response: I'm glad you liked everything. I was a little concerned the stickers wouldn't arrive in time, but they did. I'm glad you enjoy them. For the Horde!
Response: They're both from Michaels Crafts. The Fly high is a single roll, and the old style globes are a double, with I think a black with white dot pattern.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I had fun cutting it out and putting it together. and stomping on bubble wrap is most fun :)
Response: I read it for the book club. Well, I'm reading it. It's a slog.
Response: Thanks for the rating, I'm glad the resend made it to you.
Response: I'm glad you liked it :) I thought it would be fun to include a couple embossed images. I think if you gave it a try, you'd find you like embossing. It doesn't stir up a lot of dust, so you might be ok
Response: I am glad I made good choices :) I had fun finding things for you
Response: I am glad you liked it, it took me forever to find the right rear view goat photo for that ATC.
Response: I'm glad you like it. It was my first attempt at altering a postcard :)
Response: I'm glad you like Count Ernie von Envelope :) The Ernie stamp came from the first Ernie inspired swap, from my swap partner. Isn't it wonderful?
Response: Once you've read it, check out what I said, and see if the things that bothered me bothered you. I tried not to spoil anything in the review
Response: The Ernie is heat embossed. The stamp came to me in a swap, and I thought he'd be fun to use. I'm glad you like them, I am not particularly crafty, but I liked making them.
Response: By all means, steal that idea! I'm sure I'm not the only person who's come up with it :) I was actually looking at my tape one day, and decided to give it a try. It turned out to work great
Response: There's actually 2 in my computer nook. That one's floor to ceiling, and the other one is the same size, but tipped on it's side, with small cubbies. They're both crammed full of books, trinkets, movies, and games.
Response: That stamp is the best, I received it in a swap not that long ago and I'm putting it on EVERYTHING!
Response: I'm glad you liked them. I wanted to try a different medium with each set (nail polish, acrylic, washi tape) and I really liked how those two came out.
Response: I highly recommend seeing a Chihuly installation if you can. His work is beautiful. I can spot a Chihuly from quite a distance now :)
Response: I'm glad you liked my reading list. I tend to read a little bit of everything :)
Response: Thank you for re-rating, I'm glad that the resend made it, and in the end it was just a mix up. :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I love working in glass, and sharing it with others
Response: I'm glad you like your ATC, I was worried that what I came up with would be crap. I was happy with how it turned out, but I wasn't sure you would be.
Response: I Love Chihuly's work, and that's one of my favorite photos ever. I was glad to be able to share it. Thanks for the anniversary wishes, our 8th was last year, and I was glad that I wasn't required to have a recent photo for this swap :)
Response: Thanks for the rating. Yeah, The bees upset me, because I've shopped there, and there's been so much in the news lately about bees.
Response: Bell siphon and barrels is the way I'm thinking about doing it, and koi. We're not comfortable having to kill the fish.
I highly recommend using a blog to post the book recommendations on, it makes it easy to find, and swap bot messages are less likely to be lost. Thanks for rating
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the rating and the heart :)
Response: I'm glad you liked your ATCs. I have trouble with acrylics, but I wanted to give them a shot (first set was nail polish, next is washi tape)
Response: I am so glad you liked your Ernie, I was also heartbroken to hear of his untimely demise. We'll remedy that. I like to include a bit about the glass process because many people are curious, and think it's far more complicated than it is.
Response: Glad you like them! I have so many k cups and I never use them, so I love to send lots :)
Response: I'm glad it made it to you. I had to stop by the post office because I wasn't convinced that the postage I'd slapped on there was enough
Response: I'm glad you like your ugly envelope! I saw you did a lot of ATC swaps, so I hoped the sleeves would come in handy. The gear things are cute, but I didn't know what to do with them, so I hoped you could help them find a home
Response: I'm glad you liked your swap. I don't even remember why I had the highlighters, other than a swap, and I've been waiting for someone to give them to. Glad I could send them on to you :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I'm a bit of a washi tape addict now, so I wanted to spread the love :)
I love that iridescent glass, it's one of my favorite things to work with
Response: I'm so glad that it made it to you! If it hadn't showed, I would have made another and sent it to you :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I did it by making an aTC Sized Nipper, and glued him to the white cardstock. Then I used a paper cutter to trim it into strips, and then cut out the pieces I needed. It was quite a bit of work, but I thought it looked neat :)
Response: I'm glad you liked the edge. I thought that the plain was kind of boring, so I borrowed my grandmother's collection of fancy cutting scissors and went to town :)
Response: I'm glad you loved you swap, I had a lot of fun trying to find things that would fit for camp Nano, and fit in with things you liked )
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I didn't know where to get washi tape in my corner of the US, so I ordered a bunch off Etsy. Then I discovered the local craft store had a bunch =/ Oh well, the ones off Etsy are more interesting.
Response: Mozzie is pretty well behaved, but I think he'd draw the line at being drawn on. Which is a shame, he's a fluffy white cat, so there's lots of canvas.
Response: I'm glad you liked my list. I thought the quote would fun for 2 reasons: you'd have an idea of what it was before you opened it, and because the envelope was pretty plain :)
Response: Voodoo Doughnut is fantastic. The building is the same shade at that postcard
Response: For a change, I did! Usually I don't get quite as many books, but this was a slow month for work.
